“We had a great time on FOX 5 DC making fruit crostini with the anchors…we’ve always been comfortable around food, and even if you don’t make it to Tuscany, you can still enjoy some of its amazing tastes right in your own kitchen,” said Linda Meyers, co-owner of Cook in Tuscany of Haymarket, Va.
Retired United States Air Force pilot George Meyers and his wife, Linda, now a retired Prince William County school teacher, regularly enjoyed trips to their favorite travel spot, Tuscany. Over time, these trips became Cook in Tuscany, a culinary travel destination, where guests from around the globe can cook alongside Tuscan cooks, not taught in culinary schools, but from their Tuscan mothers and grandmothers. Natives of New Orleans and high school sweethearts, the Meyers’ shared a long-time passion for good food. The Meyers personally take guests on wine tours, cheese-making tours and truffle hunts as well, creating an immersive experience in Tuscan cuisine and culture. The week-long package tours are all-inclusive of hotels and food, not including air fare.
